The following are details of the more commonly used timber species in many of the Gallery’s product. If the timber you require information on is not listed below please contact the Gallery.
A Tillandsia is an Airplant, meaning they do not need soil to survive. The plant absorbs all its water and nutrients through its leaves, with its roots being used purely to support the plan itself. These roots will grow into the timber after about 8 weeks or so depending on the plant. Your Tillandsia may flower once or twice a year, and may also propagate new plants.
Here at the Gallery we use KUNOS Natural Oil Sealer No 244 as the finish on all of the Gallery’s product. Kunos is made from natural safe ingredients that do not pose any danger to personal health or the environment and is suitable for treating timber food preparation utensils such as bench tops, salad bowls etc. Kunos is a waterproof product to allow for washing of utensils. We use the same finish on furniture, sculptures and other items found in the Gallery that are made of wood.
